open source lecture: philosophy of science

In the interest of submitting my work to the wisdom of the crowd, I'm trying out a new way to teach the philosophy of science, using visual cues to articulate concepts. I'd love feedback on how this will go over. I picked:

"Nature Boy" Ric Flair for Popper's Falisifability
The movie "Clueless" for Kuhn's Paradigms
A hive of worker bees for Lakatos' research programmes
Seinfeld's "The Opposite" episode for Feyerabend's counterinduction

Here it is: let me know what you think.
